New ECR Fall Schedule
Extra time, more dancing!

ECR is moving to a new schedule. We'll be trying this new format for the rest of the year. Let us know what you think!

FREE Intro Session the first Wednesday of every month

No experience needed. No obligation. See what a kick square dancing can be!

  • November 2
  • December 7
  • January 4
7:45-9:00 pm at St. Andrews United Methodist Church.


7:00-8:00 pm: Full club dancing at the Plus and Advanced level. If you know how to Scootback and Relay the Deucey, come on out and dance.
8:00-9:30 pm: Class begins. If you're a student, be prepared for a fun time learning with Rich Reel. If you're an angel, stay and help fill out the squares to keep everybody learning and having fun. There will be two short star tips: a Plus star tip about halfway through and an Advanced tip near the end of the night.


7:00-8:00 pm: Workshop on Plus or A2 calls. The month of October will be Advanced calls and November will be Plus calls; the levels alternate between months. If you want to be a stronger dancer, join us and learn how to do things from different positions, different genders, left handed, and more!
8:00-9:30 pm: Full club dancing alternating between Plus & Advanced. If there is a full complement of full C1 level dancers, there will be a C1 tip near the end of the evening. There will not be a lot of workshopping or instruction and the tips get more challenging as the night goes on.

Note: Due to the increase of callers and length of dancing, the drop-in fee (angels) for Wednesday is going up to $6 starting on 9/14. The door fee for Tuesday is staying at the current rate of $8. Intro Nights are FREE for prospective dancers.

Come out and enjoy the camaraderie and fun that square dancing can bring. If you have any questions, please ask any board member or send us an email and we'll do our best!

August 13, 2016: America's Square Dance

El Camino Reelers and friends were featured in two episodes of Mike Luna's closed-circuit TV show America's Square Dance, which you can now see on YouTube. At 28 minutes each, these may be more square dancing than anyone really needs to watch. Check out the "Masterpiece Theatre" intro!

Real dancing.
Real people.
Real fun.

EL CAMINO REELERS is a modern Western Square Dance club, formed by lesbians and gay men in order to meet people, have fun, and learn to square dance. We dance to live callers using the Callerlab Mainstream, Plus, Advanced, and C1 programs.

LEARN TO SQUARE DANCE! It's a great way to meet active, open-minded, intelligent, and sometimes very silly people. We would be glad to welcome you to our club. Send a note to information@reelers.org and let us know you're interested.
